As genealogists and family historians, we appreciate ALL our ancestors. But nothing makes us happier than ancestors who left records of their lives—photographs, letters, diaries—so that we can know them in a personal way that is not possible from other records.
Think about a hundred years from now...it’s 2111...what artifacts will your descendants have from which to know you?
For Ancestor Appreciation Day, I’m making a resolution to be a better ancestor! Next month is Family History Month, and each week I’ll be working on, and sharing with you, what I’m doing to create and preserve a legacy for my descendants.
